In July 1968, Eunice Kennedy in her remarks at this Opening Ceremony, said this inaugural event prove "a very fundamental fact”—that children with intellectual disabilities can be exceptional athletes and that "through sports they can realize their potential for growth.” She pledged that this new organization would offer people with intellectual disabilities everywhere “the chance to play, the chance to compete and the chance to grow.” What inaugural event occurred in 1968 (and today has more than 5 million children and adults in more than 170 countries participate in)?


This week's trivia question:
